The only reason I mention it happens to me is because I would hate for new people to feel unwelcome if that chat boots them and think it is personal. I have chatted many times, and all but once it was just fun with nobody arguing or anything-- you know, talking about pets and school and work and how hot Johnny Depp is in Pirates of the Carribean... Yet still I would get bumped sometimes. The one time I was there and someone did come in talking about how they felt some bannings weren't fair, etc, they did stay until they said goodbye and left chat on their own. I am not saying nobody has ever been booted deliberately from there, I would have no clue about that, just saying that it really does happen as a technical issue pretty often. I mean I don't imagine anyone would bump me because they don't trust me when I am talking about my trip to Kennesaw mountain with Manson, yet I do get bumped. Don't know if it's Java or whatever chat server it is or what, but it does happen.
I have never been in the TP chat room. I have not tried it because I see so many people having problems trying to get in there. I would like to check out your new chat room Cschimizzi if that would be okay with you ?
Pits, you are just one classy lady LOL. Cschimizzi did a really nice thing to allow members to chat since this chat room causes so many people difficulty. Why do you have to start something everywhere you go ? Let it alone and move on about your business. Or is your business trying to pick fights with everyone on this board? I am not on here often but when I am , all I see is trouble from you. Being the loudest and most obnoxious person does not win many friends. So much negativity really is not healthy. Please try and find peace somewhere for yourself.
Pitsanddobes - Will you give it up for once? Reading your negativity day after day after day, is dis-heartening. No matter what someone says, you always (and I mean ALWAYS) have to come back and mention how poorly you are treated on Terrific Pets, whether it be in the discussion forum or the chat room.
If you are really that un-happy here, then why come back? Do you dwell on misery? Is your life that unhappy that you are trying to drag everyone else down with you?
Stop the personal attacks, get on with your life. Really, you will feel much better if you try to look for the positive in everyone that you meet, rather than dwell on what you assume to be negative points of their personalities.
I try not to get involved in your drama, and that is what it is. I haven't quite figured you out yet, but I am beginning to believe that you are seeking attention. Almost child-like, if you can't get positive attention, then you will go for negative attention.
Please stop with the negative behaviour and attitude. You really are not painting a very nice picture of yourself.
In my own opinion, you should be glad that ADMIN (or as you call them - Jason) allowed you to come back to TP at all. You have been given a second chance and you are not using that second chance in the best way possible.
Remember, positive attitude.
If I have offended any other members, than forgive me, but I am just getting tired of one member causing so much trauma to a website that was once fun to come to.
Hello everyone! About 3-4 days ago i decided to go chat at TP, there were some very nice people in there and i felt very welcome! As i was chatting with these nice people someone started asking me questions, like if i was with both forums, I said yes since i have nothing to hide and many people enjoy both forums. Then this person was saying they got messages about me and accused me of copying and pasting. The whole time i was being accused i just continued on my conversation with the other people in chat that day. Next thing I knew I was banned and I still am. I did nothing wrong, I believe Icy and Mizzi where in there and they were very nice, sorry i cant remember everyone else that was in there. I was sad to be banned and honestly it upset me since i did nothing wrong.
I dont know if the banning was an error from the chat since the chat is having problems, or if i was actually banned. I just wanted to point out that during all this fighting and bickering, I never got involoved in it, the only post I contribute to are those where someone is asking advice, and if i can help I will post something, or i will post my own quetions concerning my dogs and cat.
I dont want to get involoved in any fighting or bickering, I just want people to know what happened to me concerning the TP chat.
Sydney: I really feel that there is a serious problem in TP chat. I mean a mechanical problem, maybe not the right word, but what I mean to say, I don't think it is someone physically banning people. At least from my own experience.
There are days (sometimes close to a week) when no one can get logged into the Chat room here. We all get error messages, I feel it has nothing to do with moderators banning anyone.
I've been in the chat with maybe one other person, (who is not a moderator) and either one or the other of us got booted out and had a hard time to log back in.
What I'm trying to say is I believe that the error messages we get or the banned messages we get from time to time when trying to access the chat room, are not really sent by a moderator, it is an error in the chat room itself.
Just speaking from personal experience. I am not a moderator or a website owner, but this is what I believe is the case.
everyone that is regular members on tp chat knows that there is not a "glitch" scout and cm bump everybody they don't want in there. It is just a fact. If admin wants to know the truth, he needs to check into it.
Everyone keeps telling pitsanddobe to quit starting trouble but how about telling the other troublemakers that are bashing her to stop.
Never ending abuse on this forum...to certain people anyway.
If the mods were worth anything they would not let this go on. If Admin cared about his forum, he would get rid of the mods (one was not enough).
Sorry the link to the other chat has been removed. I understand that it's a conflict in advertising another site, but think this was simply an effort to provide a place for TP members to chat while TP chat is having server problems.
For those of you who DO get into TP chat, rather than exchange angry words or allow yourself into being goaded into heated exchanges, why not simply use the "Ignore" button? Might save everyone a bit of frustration once you are in there and might make the conversations a bit more pleasant. Chat with only those you CARE to chat with, ignore those you chose NOT to chat with.
